Details

This tea originates from Mount Putuo, considered one of China's four famous Buddhist retreats. The area enjoys a temperate marine climate with plenty of rainfall, lush woods and fertile soil. Buddha Mountain is a robust green tea and a great choice for everyday drinking. It is mellow and smooth with little astringency and offers fresh, vegetal flavors with a hint of asparagus. This tea is carefully basket-roasted, delivering a lightly sweet aftertaste.

Tea and Buddhism

During the Tang Dynasty, tea drinking became increasingly popular among Chinese Buddhist monks, who recognized that green tea helped to promote alertness and wakefulness for meditation.  As many Buddhist monasteries were located in high mountain regions where tea plants flourished, the monks began cultivating tea and became some of the earliest producers of quality green teas.

This tea is my go-to when I'm in the mood for some green tea in the evenings. It is very rich and potent, so be careful when seeping because you may get a quicker bitterness than others, but in my opinion that's a good thing. I reuse my tea leaves 2 or 3 times, especially if they are this quality. The price is a little steep which is why I took a star off. (Posted on 3/12/18)
